It attacks the loaves, youns shoots, and flower buds, often curl ing the leaves. On the shoots, caly*, and fruit the fungus forms thick, felty patches that persist late. into the season, and hero produces the small black bodies' containing the spores to carry it over till the next year. Sometimes the disease occurs in two stages T- the first after the leaves arc formed, and the second when tbo young wood has made growth. and the flowers have com menced to appear. This is'.the.criti cal period and the fung.us prepares to 'carry, over the winter. Dusting with (lowers of sulphur mixed with oie third of Its volume of lime -chocks _ the disease.

CALVES AND TUBERCULOSIS. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 12 June 1914
! CALVES AND TUBERCULOSIS. Kvcrjone connected with farming is now very keen on the subject of fighting tuborculosis umong our herds. It is pointed out, however, in h contemporary, that most of us nre working from the wrong end altoge ther. We nre treating animals nfter they are attacked, and proposing tu have them examined and slaughtered, whereas nothing is done at the other end, as it were, to breed animals. free of tuberculosis. It Is well enough known now that a calf from a tuber culous cow may be perfectly, healthy, nnd nearly always is to start with, and if wc feed It on healthy railk, and keep it away from tainted sur roundings, in ninety-nine eases out &lt;5f a hundred it would grow up a good and healthy animal. The wholo point, therefore, empha sises the fact that wc should set about rearing our calves under, proper conditions, and that we might in a short time bring forward herds which would be absolutely sound to begin with, nnd these would take the place of other...

A New Invention. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 12 June 1914
A New Invention. A remarkable invention pregnant with useful possibilities is the wire less long-distance mirror. Its pur pose, in brief, is to convey an image in the same manner that sounds aro^ HOW communicated. It is a radical improvement on the old-time camera obscura, a structure in which the real image of an ob ject is projected upon a white table or other plane surface. Not only does the new apparatus reflect on a mirror all objects located and nil happenings occurring within a much greater area than the camera obscura, but it operates at night. Just how the machine works has not vet been revealed, but it is known to consist of 'a v.eh of wires attached to a tall mast, and it is this web which receives the impressions and projects them on to the mirror located at the base of .the mast. The principal value of the new ap pnratus will bo in its application to ships. It is expected to prevent collisions with other ships, ice bergs, or derelicts by disclosing the uliereabouts of s...
Glaciers and Icebergs. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 12 June 1914
Glaciers and Icebergs. Most of us talk of glaciers and ice bergs familiarly; but how many know how thoy are formed ? When snow falls in tho lower re gions, or at high altitudes, Mr. A. G. Ogilvie explained to a largo audienco of young folks in the thea tre of tho Royal Geographical So ciety at Burlington Gardens, it docs not. melt, or it molts very little, oven during tho summer. So the layers of snow are constantly incroasing. When tho slopes are steep, the accumulated snow falls as an avalanche ; but on a high table land there is no such escape for it. But the snow, falling year after year, does not builci up a great snow mountain, because tho lower layers nro pressed down by the ^reat weight, the air is squeezed out, and granular ice is formed. This downward motion is the es sential feature in tho .glacier. First the grains of ico rare no bigger than a pin's head ; but they gradually, as the pressure increases, get bigger and bigger, and the largo ones absorb tho smaller. The riv...
EYEBROWS. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 12 June 1914
EYEBROWS. I Bye-brows that are lighter in col our than the hair are usually a sign of weak constitution, but eye-brows darker than the hair generallj go with a vigorous mind and body, more especially when they are bushy and tufted. As a general rule the closer the eyebrows lie to the eyes, the greater are the powers of concentration, though sometimes such brows are as sociated with a suspicious nature. Well-arched eyebrows are a sign of artistic, agreeable temperament, but when they lie far away from the eyes the owner is often most unreliable. If the eyebrows, instead of droop ing at the end, turn upwards to wards the temples, their possessor is likely to have a strong sense of hu mour, and is likely, to make a name as a comedian, or as a humorous artist or writer. From time immemorial, eyebrows that meet across the nose have been associated with a passionate and even a murderous temperament. Persons with little or no eyobrows are almost invariably not only weak in body, but weak i...

To Tell tha Age of an Egg. I ? I - The method, explained bolqw, of easily ascertaining whether an egg is froeh or otherwise, comes from tho Agricultural Society of Saxony. All tho apparatus required is a vos sel filled with water. Placed in tho "water, tho ogg, if fresh, will remain resting at the bottom of tho vessel in a horizon tal position.

MUSIC AND LABOUR. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 19 June 1914
MUSIC AND LAHOUH. An interesting development in con nection with the loud-speaking lolo phono Is its use for distributing music during working hours in fac tories, warehouses* ant! other institu tions where men are engaged in work of a monotonous character. It has long been known that work requiring mechanical skill without the necessity of mental concentra tion can be promoted by supplying the workers with some kind of plea sant amusement that will not take the attention from the work, and the loud-speaking telephone ap pears to uiako this possible on a scale not hitherto thought of.

Fair-Haired Flirts. "Ninety of every hundred respond ents in divorce eases ara blondes," said a celebrated American lawyer, Mr! Herman L. Roth, recently. "Blondes aro vain. Blondes arc fic kle.
